Agreement between Renfe Operadora and Mafex to promote and support the internationalisation of the Spanish railway sector

Amongst the numerous acts carried out in parallel to the congress programme and the Rail Live trade fair!2019, It is also worth mentioning the signing of an agreement between Renfe Operadora and Mafex carried out by the President of Renfe Operadora Isaías Táboas and the President of Mafex, Víctor Ruiz.

The agreement’s aims

The purpose of the agreement is to establish general lines of collaboration between the Association and the entity to promote and support the internationalisation of the Spanish railway sector, as well as to support and encourage collaboration in innovation and competitive improvement between the companies associated with Mafex, the actual association and both bodies.

The volume of activity of the associated companies in Mafex, which brings together the most relevant companies and representative of the sector, reflects the importance of the Spanish rail sector and its export profile. The more than eighty associated companies invoiced materials and services on railway ventures totalling more than 5 billion euros last year and represent 75% of exports of the rail sector.

Renfe, on the other hand, with extensive experience in international cooperation, maintains open lines of collaboration with other foreign railway companies.
